Critic Reviews for Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition
Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition delivers what its title promises: a definitive edition of Dynasty Warriors 8. In an effort that includes a very rich amount of content and a good, interesting, and versatile gameplay, this immense effort also features a long and healthy lifespan, and while it could use some improvements regarding fluidity problems on multiplayer and short term repetitiveness, this is without a doubt one of the best versions of the Dynasty Warriors series.

While it might seem odd for Omega Force to opt to port the five-year-old Dynasty Warriors 8 over the more recent Dynasty Warriors 9, it's by and far the right decision for Nintendo Switch owners. Not only is Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition the best version since Dynasty Warriors 5, it comes to the hybrid platform offering more stable performance than the versions that once graced PS3 and Xbox 360. Even when its framerate takes a knock when playing co-op, it's a remarkably robust port boasting an obscene amount of content fresh out of the box.
Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition is without a doubt the best Warriors game I have ever played, and to see it run so well on the Switch is fantastic to see. Featuring a seemingly endless ocean of content to be conquered, alongside an army of playable characters and arsenal of unique weaponry, it's a game I can recommend to any Warriors fan with no hesitation.
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition won't win over any new fans due to the core act of long battles against hapless minions, but existing fans will love the sheer amount of content here. With the many long modes available and all of the DLC present, this title offers some real value, and while the presentation isn't breathtaking, it is good enough to keep up with the relentless action. For fans of the series, DW8 on the Switch is well worth picking up.
